 RE: Stoltzman's Sound

I personally have a love/hate relationship with Stoltzman's sound, haveing heard him live on several occasions. I enjoyed the Foss pieces he played (Lukas Foss played piano), New York Counterpoint. Thought his rendition of the Gershwin preludes were akin to the intake side of a vacuum cleaner. Vibrato gets tiresome when used all the time, same as his lip bends. I don't have my programs handy to remind me of the others, but let's say it generally ends up for me a good 50/50 on the love/hate.

The first thing I can remember hearing from Stoltzman (or of _any_ clarinet playing at all!) is the Debussey Arabesque (#5 ??) - and thinking that it must have been written for the clarinet and adapted for piano, not vice-versa. The vibrato he used was thick, but it seemed to (and still does) fit nicely into the piece.

He definitely has his moments, and is a relentless promoter of both the clarinet and himself - which isn't a bad thing in either case, IMHO. If I could play as well as he does - I'd play a different way, but that's just me. YMMV.
